The first time I saw this picture, it simple cracked me up and I am always amused with this particular funny picture of the Monorail Cat.

I saw this picture on V7N Forums, and I just cannot help it but to show it here.

A Stranger’s Approach for $8

August 30, 2007 · Posted in Rant Corner · 2 Comments 

Strangers

I was approached by a stranger this morning just after my breakfast at a coffee shop nearby my house. Simply out of the blue, he started to call me “Sir“, and approached me to ask for some help. Without much explanation, I knew he was asking for some money to help his baby. To me, he sounded unconvincing even after showing his identity card indicating his name and his NRIC number to me. He wanted S$8 to pay for the medicine bill for his baby. For some reasons, I am not taken in by the fact that the medicine charged at the polyclinics (Pasir Ris branch) in Singapore could be so cheap (also, does Polyclinics in Singapore turn patients away, despite the fact they could be penniless? Though Singaporeans are not poor, but there are some which are not really well off).

Dell Inspiron 5150 Laptop

August 29, 2007 · Posted in Inventory · 2 Comments 

Dell Inspiron 5150My Dell Inspiron 5150 laptop has been with me for at least 3 years old and it has been function very well. To be frank, this baby is the fourth laptop that I have owned over the last 8 years, since 1999, and it the most lasting laptop. The others have a lifespan of, generally, not more than 2 years.

The laptops that I have before Dell Inspiron 5150 are Aus Pentium II 350MHz laptop, Compaq Pentium III 750MHz laptop and Dell Latitude Pentium III 500MHz laptop. All three were damaged to a certain extent and thus, I was forced to buy a new one (or a replacement) each time. Of the 4 laptops that I have owned so far, only the Dell Latitude Pentium III laptop was bought off a second-hand. As a matter of fact, this current Dell Inspiron 5150 can be considered as a second hand, except it was better than that.

Interview at Market Street

August 29, 2007 · Posted in Rant Corner · 2 Comments 

Interview ClipartI went for a job interview at Market Street yesterday, and that explains why I was not “here” to write any post. It has been raining heavily yesterday afternoon, and luckily I had a small umbrella, which I bought in Nanjing, with me. Yesterday was the first time, since many years, that I wore a proper formal suit, less a tie and a jacket. Feels good!

The job came to me as a surprise – as I hadn’t plan this initially, because I was looking to completing my thesis first before I start seeking something that suits me. However, the job scope for this particular role is rather interesting, which I shall not disclose here. Furthermore, I will be working in a Multi-National Company (MNC), a German-founded company. The environment is definitely a total change from the past working experience which I have been doing, i.e. research-based, teaching and academia. Here, I am more practical in hands-on role to analyse data, which I suppose may somewhat be a challenging task. Anyway, I shall stop here. The result of the interview is not yet confirmed, as there will be more interviewees coming for that job.
